Newspaper Research for Genealogists Workshop

There is still time to register for Newspaper Research for Genealogists!

Newspapers contain vast amounts of family history information beyond obituaries yet are often overlooked as a resource. This class will cover birth, death and marriage announcements as well as legal notices, estate, land, and tax information and community “gossip” columns.

Obituaries page from the Ohio Jewish Chronicle, January 28, 1966.
